The ABS light can come on, indicating an ABS pump motor circuit fault. This is most likely to occur in warmer areas (above 90° F) and usually after a quick stop, like a refueling. If no faults can be found in the pump motor circuit after proper diagnostics, there is a revised ABS control module which should correct this concern.
